The second season of the web series “After Forever” — winner of five Daytime Emmy Awards — picks up six months after the end of Season 1. As he and his friends continue their journeys of love and loss, central character Brian has a new relationship and a new job, but the ghost of his late partner, Jason, remains very much present in his life. St. Louis native Kevin Spirtas — a longtime actor on the daytime soap opera “Days of Our Lives” — stars as Brian and also serves as the series’ co-writer and executive producer. Queerty.com writes of the series’ first season: “Queer film and TV sometimes draw criticism for focusing too much on the issues of young people. ‘After Forever’ does something entirely new, examining a latter-day cultural phenomenon that we’ll be dealing with more of now that our population is aging, post AIDS: same-sex couples in long-term relationships. Life doesn’t end at 50, or at marriage. ‘After Forever’ knows that, and tells a fresh story — by turns sexy, funny and sad — that’s always enlightening.”
